Experience & Awards

Nichola’s first book ‘Venison, the Monarch of the Table’ was published in 1983; after that she extended her interest to other subjects, though her profound knowledge of venison and game meat is the one she is most widely known and respected for.  She has written over ten books and contributed to many others. Her other specialist subjects include the history and culture of food and of feasting, caviar, and oats.

Nichola has won five major international awards and been shortlisted for others. Her books have been published in America, Japan, China and Finland as well as the UK; a testament to her knowledge and to the quality of her writing.

Below is a list of Nichola’s books in chronological order. With so long a writing career, many of the earlier books are now out of print, though you can buy signed copies of some titles from her – these are marked below.
